Garrigues has received the award for the “Most Innovative Law Firm of Continental Europe’ in the ‘FT Innovative Lawyers Awards’ organized each year by the prestigious newspaper Financial Times and the specialized consultant RSG Consulting. The awards ceremony was held for the first time as a virtual gala, which accentuated the importance of the role of collaboration in a year marked by the COVID-19 public health crisis.
Garrigues was one of the biggest winners at the fifth edition of the Expansión Legal Awards for Excellence in Business Law Practice, hosted by the daily financial newspaper Expansión. The firm received four awards: Best firm in the Digital Economy sector, Most innovative project, Best Pro Bono initiative and Best transaction.
Garrigues has been named 'International Tax Firm of the Year in the Americas' in the fifteenth edition of the International Tax Review (ITR) tax awards. The ceremony was held online last night due to the special conditions imposed by COVID-19.
Garrigues scooped up the award for “Law Firm of the Year: Spain” handed out every year by the Euromoney journal, the International Financial Law Review (IFLR). This is the seventh time the firm has received this European award in recognition of its work.
Garrigues takes the award for the second year running
Garrigues took the award for Portuguese IP Firm of the Year for the second year running at the annual Global IP Awards organized by the international publications World Trademark Review (WTR) and Intellectual Asset Management (IAM). The firm collected the award last night at the award ceremony in London.
Garrigues was named the law firm of the year for the Andes region, as part of LatinFinance’s Deals of the Year Awards. With this accolade, the LatinFinance editorial team recognized Garrigues for its legal counsel in certain landmark financial deals in Latin America during the past year. The awards ceremony held last night in New York, where the US publication is headquartered, brought together the top investors, banks and law firms operating in Latin America. This is the third time Garrigues has won this award, this time for the second year in a row.
Garrigues received the FT European award for legal innovation in London last night, for creating a new way to help international investors recover non-performing loans (NPL) from financial institutions. The newspaper took into account the huge impact of this legal innovation, which creates a new standard and improves competition and the appeal of the Spanish NPL market, one of the most active in Europe. This new approach, conceived by Garrigues’ Restructuring and Insolvency Department, allows funds to rapidly foreclose, auction and award the assets, saving a great deal of time and money.
Garrigues has won the Gold Award for Best Latin American Law Firm for its outstanding presence in the region and, specifically, for the work of the corporate law practice and its advice on transactions in strategic sectors for the Latin American economy.
